How do you do this type of optin box on a website?

I've seen a whole bunch of sites that have a box that pop open and stay open at the bottom of the website - like a 1 inch strip at the bottom of the page. not sure if i can post a link or not but i just saw it on terrydean.org , although i've seen it on several sites this week but can't recall the url's. it seems like a reasonably common thing on some sites, so hopefully someone will know what i'm talking about.

is there a name for this type of effect? and most importantly - does anyone know if there's a plugin to do this in wordpress?

    The first time I saw this effect it was offered here as a WSO. I can't remember the Warrior's name, but perhaps someone else will.

    If I remember rightly, resale rights were offered too, so there are probably several others selling by now, so if you don't get an answer here you might also try our friend Mr G.

    Check Robert Plank, he has a nice PHP opt in box for $27. I think the name is Action Pop Up

      thanks - i looked up his site. that's a popover that pops over the page. check out the site i listed to see it in action. it's not really a popover in that sense. it just shows at the bottom of the screen. it seems like it can be set via cookie to only show for new visitors or the first set number of times. and it's closable. i don't think it blocks any content. but see the example to clear things up. i see it every week on a bunch of websites. i was going to post about it last week but just saw it tonite and that reminded me.

    Here's the one that Terry Dean is using (I am too on my blog):-

    Squeeze: UltimateFooterAd.com

    Sales Page: High Conversion Website Advertising Solution - Ultimate Footer Ad

    I'm so impressed with this that I've given Graham Cox a testimonial for it which you'll see on the sales page. It's not a WordPress plugin, but it's very easy to use with WP, you just paste the code into the footer.php of the theme you're using above the </body> tag.

    Hmm, I've just checked the page and he's missed a crucial line from it:-

    "By using UFA, you've just pushed that number up to nearly 6-1 for me. After one week I'm now getting a new subscriber for every 6-7 visitors."

    My example is that I've been getting a new subscriber for every 17 visitors. As I get a lot of repeat traffic I was okay with that 17-1 number, and now using UFA for one week it's gone to nearly 6-1.

    So I'm very pleased with it.

    Cheers,

      Frank - great feedback, thanks! I would like to use it on my site, and then not have it show on a landing page that i am sending PPC traffic to (to stay compliant with Google's policies).

      is there a way to turn it off on a page like this?

    Hi Jay,

    Yes, it's easy...you only copy the javascript code Ultimate Footer Ad gives you into the pages you want the ad to display on.

    Question for DaddyG and Frank Haywood.

    I've just bought UFA and it looks like an awesome prduct. A problem I am coming up against is the instalation process. Do I really have to upload to my ftp, change access settings, re-write mysql settings, then Re-edit the php files back to their original settings ?? It seems a very long winded way to go about it... really looking forward to getting this thing up and running though.

    Many thanks in advance

    P.S. I use a mac

    I don't like them.
    They are a bit like the corner peels... where are they now?
    Too many gimmicks... screams out naff!
    And those bloody pop up chat boxes... that don't chat... why?
    I suppose it all a matter of personal taste

    Here's another one that, I think, acts like a viral url bar or something.

    slideupads.com

    I don't like them either, it's just as annoying as a pop-up to me.
